So it looks like the last time my local office dealt with I485 was the 2nd of February 2014. Is that a good thing or bad? Does it mean that they are way behind and that my process is going to be slowed down and wouldn't get through soon?

Since it is more than the "usual" 4 months, it could be a bad thing. I say could, because sometimes that date really doesn't matter. For example my local office is dealing with I-485's from November 2013, but people who filed earlier this year had already been approved.

In saying all that, it does mean that your office is experiencing a delay. From the USCIS website: However, if the office is experiencing a processing delay, you will find the filing date of the last case that the office completed before updating the chart.
